If only we could tell people, “Excuse me, your bias is showing!” It would be so easy. Sadly, though, it’s not effective. To learn what does work, tune into this talk by Tiffany Jana, author of Overcoming Bias and new book Erasing Institutional Bias.
In 30 minutes, she’ll share proactive steps you can take to recognize, reduce and address bias. She’ll also explain the impact of bias in the workplace, the importance of building accountability—both personally and at work—and how to build authentic relationships across difference.
